Village to Vote on Dissolution
Middleburgh is planning a vote on whether or not to dissolve the Village of Middleburgh in February. The vote, slated for February 19, is a result of a petition circulated by Gary Hayes. Under a new state law, the vote has to take place and cannot include Town residents. A report on the effects of the dissolution will be mailed to the residents of both the Town and the Village in the coming week. A copy of the original petition can be found here. An affirmative vote would phase out the Village government over the next three years, dissolving the agencies within. Informational meetings are planned over the next two months.
